    File Size Quota

    Does anyone know fo a piece of software that can restrict the maximum file size of a file saved to a users area we have user area quotas now but I'm looking at reducing the video file size they keep saving?

    I have a general limit set for the user area's. setting file size quota's will never work as you will always get someone who needs to save a file that is just that bit bigger than your limit (always happened here), so instead we put in a disk quota which does the trick!

    Thanks, but I already use Disk quotas and I want to force them into saving smaller files.

    Well forcing that is near impossible unless you can write your own GPO, and even then, it needs to be able to read the file formats and sizes as soon as they click save....
